Siemens Energy has invested three million pounds in its wind power training facility in Newcastle in the UK. Newcastle is the headquarters for the newly integrated Energy Service business in the UK and Ireland region servicing both conventional and onshore and offshore wind power plants.

The wind power service teams will provide support for new and existing projects in the UK, in particular the Crown Estate Round 3 offshore wind power development program and Scottish Waters. With a focus on this specific UK opportunity, Siemens decided in 2009 to establish locally in the UK the in-house training and provide the necessary training infrastructure for its service engineers from one dedicated centre. The facility provides technical and health and safety training for Siemens' wind power service technicians, equipping them with the skills required to meet the service needs of the industry. The facility currently includes a fully loaded 2.3MW nacelle and will be expanded later this year to include an offshore 3.6 MW turbine, as well as training tower and other key training resources.
